    How many hours a day should I Run pump?

    How many hours a day should I be running my pool pump? The temps are about to climb into summer weather which is 95-115 for the next few months.

    I run mine at 1100 rpm for filtering, skimming and making chlorine with the SWG. It only uses 150 watts. 2-3 hours AM and again in PM is probably sufficient. If the pool stays clean, good. If not increase run time a little until the pool stays clean.
